    Apparently he was meant to be the animal iteration of Seth MacFarlane, so I'd imagine some ESFj. Sx 7w8 or something?

    My inclination is that he's very likely an NT.

    I don't think he gets along swimmingly with Stewie(LII), so i'ma lean Gamma. Maybe INTP
    Projection is ordinary. Person A projects at person B, hoping tovalidate something about person A by the response of person B. However, person B, not wanting to be an obejct of someone elses ego and guarding against existential terror constructs a personality which protects his ego and maintain a certain sense of a robust and real self that is different and separate from person A. Sadly, this robust and real self, cut off by defenses of character from the rest of the world, is quite vulnerable and fragile given that it is imaginary and propped up through external feed back. Person B is dimly aware of this and defends against it all the more, even desperately projecting his anxieties back onto person A, with the hope of shoring up his ego with salubrious validation. All of this happens without A or B acknowledging it, of course. Because to face up to it consciously is shocking, in that this is all anybody is doing or can do and it seems absurd when you realize how pathetic it is.

    For the sake of discussion, I sorta find brian a bit boring, maybe because he's a rational and has a hard time being spontaneous (extremely indecisive to the point of becoming depressed). He can't seem to easily motivate himself to do a lot of things either; he seems generally without passion.

    So what is it that you like about him? (I'm just curious because I know you obviously don't find him boring)
    good bye

    these are all the reasons why i like him, lol. i mean he's so normal and sane compared to the rest of the characters and that adds to the humour. like whenever something outrageous happens he has such a realistic and level-headed reaction that it cracks me up. he's also an extremely pretentious, textbook "liberal" talking DOG. what's not to love?

    i think the character itself is supposed to be some delta, te/fi type at least, regardless of the voice actor's type who i think is indeed esfj.

    Oh, cool, I kind of see what you mean now. So you like dry and subtle humor?

    Yes, SLI was my first hunch about Brian as well.

    Brian was always my favorite, but hearing that MacFarlane turned the character into a copy of himself only had me think his identical (i.e. not Te). Without that in mind though, ISTp could make sense.

    I imagine it's because he plays the straight man/dog/whatever compared to everybody else being spastic peoples. Cleveland sorta serves the same role, and I imagine he's INFj.

    Lois is definitely an extrovert (SEE possibly). Meg is IEI. I am not sure about Brian, but Quagmire hates him, so they might be conflictors? I could see Brian LIE and Quagmire SEI.

    Brian does not have Fe PoLR. He is pretty smooth in his dealings with people and does not have that ISTp grumpiness. He also does not strike me as someone who is interested in fixing things around the house.

    chris - ISFp
    meg - ENFj > INFp
    stewie - ENTj > INTp

    Brian is an outgoing intellectual alcoholic. He procrastinates a lot with his writing career. He has established political interests and is a pretty eager debater. His views are usually expressed with "anti-establishment" and rebelling attitude. He also has trouble defining his relations with others.
    Somehow the way he does all this is easy to relate to and I type him ILE.

    I met this dog yesterday and just can't figure out intertype relations between it and me. I want to know whether or not that dog is going to play dead or something like this. What's its type?

    Peter Griffin gets on my nerves. Not due to the fact he is typed ILE but I just can't stand that character.

    So it would make sense that he made his alter ego identical?
